    Hi,
    I have bought new 2018's macbook pro 15". I am facing overheat problem. I am using extra monitor for my work. I have captured my GPU history which is using AMD Radeon Pro 560 Always. I think that's why my macbook getting overheated. How can I fix it?

    What makes you think that your MacBook Pro is overheating? What are the symptoms and are you using software to measure temperatures and fan speeds? For example: iStat Menus 6 will give you a readout of CPU temp, GPU temp, Fan speeds, and much more.

    65C? That’s absolutely fine man. CPUs & GPUs are normally rated to run up to 90C or more. Even if it hits the TDP it will throttle to reduce heat.

    Don’t worry.

    I agree, everything looks normal. Take note of your fan speeds: ~2000 RPM is normal. If the CPU or some other component (GPU) gets warm when running a graphics intensive program, the fans speeds will increase and you will likely hear the noise level go up. But right now, all looks good.

    Same here. Specially when working with external display MBP cpu temps are ramping up as like you. And if you are using graphic intensive program MBP CPU gets quickly to 90-100C. Even my old 13" MBP with i5 not overheating like this in same situation.
